And here is the third of the new videos from Metro’s marketing team, this one featuring Hollywood-based Rusty Eye promoting Nextrip, which allows users to get real-time bus and train arrival information on GPS-enabled smart phones or computers.

The new videos are intended as a fun way to help folks learn to ride the Metro system and remind everyone that taking transit can be fun and/or interesting. Please feel free to share/comment/review on social media using the hashtag #metrorocks. Metro is on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

The first video featured Galactic Flo promoting Metro’s and Google’s trip planner. The second video had the folk duo Steps of Doe explaining how to reload your TAP card at ticket machines.

One other note: the musicians who appear in the videos (and the firm that made them, Conceptive, Inc.) are entirely local. If you’re a musician and would like to share your song about local transit, you can email us here.
